Finding Love After a Break-Up: Should You Jump In?

When someone leaves us broken-hearted, our natural reaction is to find love again as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, healing a broken heart takes time and patience. It’s necessary to spend some time alone so you can build your own strength and move on to a happier, healthier relationship in the future.

The Law Of Attraction Between Celebrity Couples

The Law Of Attraction Between Celebrity Couples

Biker boy and ex-husband to America's sweetheart, Jesse James recently declared that 2010 was the best year of his life. That declaration definitely made some people raise an eyebrow or two. Since when does a messy divorce and the possibility of losing your child constitute the time of one’s life? But according to James, it all led to him finding love with Kat Von D. When he announced his engagement to Von D, people said they are perfect for each other, which was not necessarily a compliment in their case.

All men want is sex. All women want is money.

All men want is sex. All women want is money.

"Every man I meet wants one thing." "All women are the same... looking for a free ride." "Every man cheats." "Every women changes after they get married."   If I hear these lines one more time I think I'm going to puke. Not very professional, I know. Being a Chicago matchmaker is much more than finding the perfect woman for a certain man.

I'm SO Confused...

I'm SO Confused...

It took a significant amount of self-observation and awareness to finally get present to a pattern I’ve run most of my life called “I’m confused”.  Confusion can be a close relative of procrastination. It is also sometimes a thin veil between me and my fears. When I’m confused I am unable to be: • in action • have clarity • focused • present • empowered • inspired Instead, I get to:

Betrayal

Betrayal

Life has played a big joke on me............ I had boyfriends who have been so good to me, faithful, sweet, thoughtful, tolerant........ and I have not appreciated for things they have done for me..... With A we have been dating a year now, and when we were 4 months together, he cheated on me ....and I chose to forgive me... He has always been the kind of guy that flirts a lot and sweet talk to girls......

Creating a Receptive State of Mind

Creating a Receptive State of Mind

Our society runs in fast motion. There is much to do and technology easily eats up whatever time we have when we are done with our to-do list. The straight out truth is this speed is taking a toll on our lives and relationships. I'm one of those people who have much to do and love technology- internet, social networking, my DroidX, etc. However, what easily happens to others, happened to me. I stopped reserving space in my life for slowing down and listening to the “beat of my heart.”

The Anatomy of the "Penis Man"

The Anatomy of the "Penis Man"

Let me start by saying that this is not one of those estrogen-inspired male-bashing articles.I happen to have a very healthy respect for testosterone and for the vessels which carry it in abundance; namely men. After all I happen to live with four of these testoosterone carriers and have definitely survived to tell the tale. Not to take credit for the term "penis man" I must admit to having heard a guy use it several years ago. Admittedly it struck a chord back then, as I'm sure it will with you readers right now.

Woman cleaning mad

My Husband Treats Me Like A Maid

My husband and I recently celebrated our 20 year anniversary. I bought my husband a small gift and when I ask what he got me- he told me I was not worth getting anything. This really hurt, my husband does not show any kind of affection or consideration for other people's feelings. When he is confronted he just replies "You knew this when you married me." But this is the least of the problems: he refuses to "man up" and be a father to his two boys- the older one is about to graduate from high school and constantly is getting in trouble and my youngest son is in his early teens. My husband talks down women in general and my older son has learned from this and absolutely hates any kind of authority especially from women. I can't talk to him because he acts and says everything just like my husband- he is an exact clone of my husband!! When I ask my husband for help with the kids, he says I am shitting on him by telling him my problems with the kids and to just leave him alone. I really can't go on living like this. I feel like I am a maid and a sex toy not a wife. Any advice would be very helpful.

Sugar daddy

Dear Wendy, Should I Take On A Sugar Daddy?

I met this guy who proposed that he basically become my sugar daddy in exchange for sex. I told him I was into friends with benefits sex with no strings attached for free, but he told me he likes to spoil women. I don't think there is anything wrong with this and it actually excites me. He really wants to buy me things because he wants me so bad. I would give him sexual pleasure without the gifts, but is it crazy to take his gifts too? I'm looking for a no-strings-attached sexual relationship now anyway, but this one comes with perks. He offered me $75 for a pair of my used panties one morning. Do you think anything is wrong with this? He's professional and sane, but doesn't have time for a girlfriend — according to him. Regardless, I don't want to be anyone's girlfriend right now anyway. Am I crazy for doing this or should I just be living it up?
